Key Match-Up

Burnley back 5 v Lincoln front 5 – The Lincoln forwards have been playing with great confidence and skill for this tournament and have proven to be a very capable outfit who love the big clashes. Burnley’s defence was very inconsistent and unreliable to start the year but has shown solid improvement of late.
 

Verdict

A Premier League side against a fifth division team should be all that needs to be said. Lincoln though are a spirited outfit and they will fight all the way. Burnley should be too strong.
